Jonathan Taylor and the No. 6 Wisconsin Badgers (2-0) welcome the BYU Cougars (1-1) into Madison on Saturday afternoon.

The game is scheduled to start at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on ABC. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can still watch a live stream of the game (or DVR it) on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:

Hulu With Live TV

In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including ABC (live in select markets, but even if it isn’t included in your market, you’ll be able to watch the game on the ESPN digital platforms with your Hulu credentials).

You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and if ABC is live in your market, you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app. If ABC isn’t live in your market, scroll down to the “ESPN Platforms” section to see where you can watch.

If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).

Sling TV

Although ABC isn’t technically part of the Sling TV package, you can sign up for a free 7-day trial of the “Sling Orange” bundle, which includes ESPN3, and you’ll then be able to watch a live stream of the game on the ESPN digital platforms (see next section).

ESPN Platforms

You can watch a live stream of the game on your computer via, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the ESPN app. Games on ABC (labeled as ESPN3) can be watched for free without cable if you have a participating internet service provider (ISP), but even if you don’t have a participating ISP, you can still sign use your Hulu or Sling TV (or other cable TV) credentials to sign in and watch the game on the ESPN digital platforms.


Taylor continued his early-season dominance on the ground with career-highs of 33 carries and 253 rushing yards, while scoring three touchdowns to lead the way last week as the Badgers rolled to a 45-15 victory at home against the New Mexico Lobos.

But for the second straight game, Taylor lost a fumble. Taking care of the football better is still a priority moving forward, as Taylor continues to be the focal point of the offense for head coach Paul Chryst. Chryst believes Taylor can fix his fumbling issue.

“I just like the way he keeps an even keel. He doesn’t want to (fumble), but he knows too that he can pay it back.”

Quarterback Alex Hornibrook didn’t have to do too much as the gameplan mostly revolved around Taylor. Hornibrook finished 8-for-11 with 148 yards, one touchdown and an interception.
BYU continues its early-season slate with another Power Five conference opponent. After spoiling head coach Kevin Sumlin’s debut with a 28-23 win on the road against Arizona on opening weekend, the Cougars fell at home to California 21-18 last week, almost erasing an 11-point deficit twice.

In order to have a chance at pulling the upset, Cougars senior quarterback Tanner Magnum will have to play better than he did last week in their narrow loss against the Golden Bears. Last season, the game between these two teams wasn’t close. Magnum and linebacker Zayne Anderson were both injured and did not play, resulting in an easy 40-6 win for the Badgers.

Junior wide receiver Danny Davis, who was suspended for the first two games of this season by Chryst, will return and give the Badgers another weapon next to A.J. Taylor in the passing game.
